After reading Danielle DeVor's first book, Sorrow's Point, I was hooked on her writing. When her new book, Sorrow's Edge, was released I grabbed a copy right away. Danielle has such fun with her writing of horror and the paranormal. She combines wit, action, mystery, ghosts (entities, demons and all things supernatural and tosses all this into the real world we live in. This is a fantastic read for Halloween. It will put you in the spirit.

In Sorrow's Edge we follow along with Jimmy Holiday

Sequels are tough—trust me, I know. As an author, you must delve deeper into the mystery that is your hero, looking for new weaknesses to exploit. That’s right, what you want is to put this guy through more hell and see if he’ll survive. In Jimmy Holiday’s case, you’ve got an embarrassment of riches. He’s a former priest and, though still a tortured Catholic, finds himself seriously questioning the path God has apparently chosen for him. You see, Jimmy is a reluctant exorcist—and a marker. To ...more

What on earth happened??

I was joyfully anticipating the next in this series, expecting another spine tingling horror, just like the first book. However, I was severely disappointed. There was nothing resembling a good horror book whatsoever. This read more like poorly written urban fantasy aimed at teenagers going through their goth phase. (The chapters being named after 00's rock songs was a horrible attempt to appeal to that market.) The main character in the first of the series was an

This is the 2nd book in the series. The series should be read in order or you will be a bit lost at times. In this book Jimmy and Tabby are moving in together and trying their relationship again. Tabby does not know at first Lucy has tagged along as well. As in the 1st book Jimmy gets a phone call at 3AM asking for help. Jimmy gets a package in the mail of a Old Flask and then one morning Jimmy wakes up and finds an IPad on his kitchen table. It is from the Order. Jimmy, Tabby, and Lucy get on a ...more

Oh my Doc Holiday, YES! The author surprised me with where she went in book 2. It was totally unexpected and completely amazing! Not only did I get more of my Jimmy fix, she added Doc Holiday to the mix and made my day. I was completely captivated with how she seamlessly began Sorrow's Edge. It was flawless and of course I loved the sarcasm Tabby continues to throw out at Jimmy. They are perfect together. I also felt completely astonished with the way my feelings completely changed for Lucy. ...more
Well...I'm on the 2nd book in the series and I already bought the next one in line. It's a different take on things and I love that it has a Catholic and a Wiccan working together and in a a relationship together. Plus the supernatural aspect is always interesting. First one was a possessed little girl and the 2nd was a guy who tried to get power by taking in a demon willingly then regreting it.

Good read

A good horror book, a girlfriend that's a Witch and the Devil plus Doc Holliday's ghost all help Jimmy the defrocked priest when he attempts to do an exorcism. There are a few twists and all is not as it should be. I enjoyed reading this book.

Not nearly as good as the first. Entertaining but lacked any cool paranormal exorcism stuff.

I came across this author and the first story, Sorrow’s Point (you can read my review here) on Netgalley and was very intrigued! I really liked the first book and was thrilled to be accepted to receive the second book from Netgalley as well.

That is, unfortunately where the thrills ended. I was a bit disappointed with the second instalment of The Maker’s Chronicles. It was a far cry from what I had expected. Wither that is because I put her second book on too high of a pedestal or not remains to

Jimmy receives a mysterious phone call in the middle of the night and a surprise gift in the mail the following morning, a silver cask. Together with his girlfriend the witchy Tabby and her fatalistic cat whom you will grow to adore, they try to unlock the secrets the container holds. Jimmy is a descendant of Doc Holliday and he thinks the cask is somehow related to his dead ancestor. Another mysterious phone call to Jimmy, who is also a defrocked priest, invites him to join an organization ...more

“Sorrow’s Edge” by Danielle DeVor is the long awaited sequel to her horror novel Sorrow’s Point.
Former priest Jimmy Holiday works as exorcist, special by a mark that distinguishes him from others. One of his latest jobs involved the daughter of a friend of his. Lucy is now without a body and can be seen by some but not by others.
A mysterious package arrives with a flask in it, a mysterious nightly (prank?) call may be connected to it – and already, within a few pages, the suspense and sense of

Danielle DeVor writes horror with wit, sarcasm and heart, an interesting combination. This is her second book featuring defrocked priest Jimmy Holiday, who is now performing exorcisms in a quasi-official capacity. Less creepy and gruesome than the first book, Sorrow's Edge keeps you turning pages and trying to outguess the demons confronting Jimmy.

This is a stand-alone book, I guess, but reading Sorrow's Point will help you understand and empathize with the characters, as well as the many

Sorrow’s Edge wasn’t what I expected, but it was fun to read.

Don’t be put off by the horror label, Sorrow’s Edge is far from scary. It is more of an urban fantasy featuring an exorcist, a witch and a disembodied spirit. Jimmie Holiday’s wry, sometimes sarcastic humor brought grins, while the cringe worthy antics of the possessed fell more into the obnoxious rather than chilling category. The central characters were fun to observe. Jimmie and Tabby work well together and their somewhat bumpy

Former priest Jimmy Holiday is a descendent of Doc Holliday, and performs exorcisms. This is the second book in the series and the follow up to Sorrow’s Point. I didn’t read the first book so I was lost in the beginning and felt like I was missing some things. Jimmy is accompanied by a witch and the soul of a young girl that he rescued from a demon. Jimmy joins a mysterious group run by the Catholic church and is told he is marked. This is a really good supernatural mystery. I liked the ...more

This book was a real disappointment to me. I was looking forward to all the creepiness and chills I got from the first book but unfortunately it was just not present in this one. There was nothing creepy at all and I just felt it was really disjointed. There were a lot more questions at the end of this one than the last. This one left me more confused than I would have liked. There was really no climax and the ending was very abrupt. Overall nothing I liked from the first novel was in this one.

Sorrows Edge

Good second installment, first book was scarier. This one was a bit more along the lines of a "Supernatural " episode.
